Learning to Knit

Learning to KnitKnitting is something that I have always wanted to learn. Recently a dear friend of the girls’ began to knit after a few lessons from her mother (Thanks Emma!). The enthusiasm was contagious and we went straight out to gather the their first knitting needles and yarn. It was amazing to see their determination to learn as they diligently sat in front of the videos below (which seemed to be the only ones that moved slow enough for true beginners). Once they got the hang of it, all three of them would sit and chat and knit together for long periods of time. It was really an amazing process to witness…

Oh, and I must mention the charming book, Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett, which was the perfect compliment to the experience. It is an inspiring story of courage and generosity and a new favorite in our picture book library.
